Amy Winehouse's home in Camden Square, London, where the singer was found dead in July 2011, sold at auction for $3.2 million, the BBC reports.

Five bidders fought it out for the property, which failed to sell when the Winehouse family put it on the market in May for about $4.2 million. The house was unoccupied during that time.

"I think they are pleased that they have drawn a line under it," said auctioneer Chris McHugh. "They did have it on the market but they didn't get the result for them." While McHugh added that the auction catalog did not state the house belonged to Winehouse, word had spread and attracted four serious bidders in the room and many more over the phone.

“You Oughta Know”

Alanis Morissette | 1995

This blunt, bitter breakup song -- famous for its line "Would she go down on you in a theater?" -- was long rumored to be about Alanis Morissette getting dumped by Full House actor Dave Coulier. But while she never confirmed it was about him (Coulier himself says it is, however), she insisted the song wasn't all about scorn. "By no means is this record just a sexual, angry record," she told Rolling Stone. "The song wasn't written for the sake of revenge. It was written for the sake of release. I'm actually a pretty rational, calm person."
